Urban Interaction Design

Spring 2020

Taught By: Carlos Gomez de Llarena

Section: A

CRN: 2773

Credits: 3

In an increasingly connected world, how are our relationships with technology and data shaping urban experiences and our communities? How can public spaces be reprogrammed with interaction design? What kinds of cities do we ultimately want to live in? In this course we will be looking at people, technology, data, cities and how we may begin designing experiences that touch on these topics while improving urban living. Critical thinking will be encouraged through readings, media screenings, case studies, guest lectures and discussions focused on urbanity, technology, sociopolitical implications and design. In addition the class will engage in an urban interaction design exercise involving site analysis, ethnographic research, design process and proof of concept. A multidisciplinary mix of students with a range of interests in architecture, urban studies, user experience, industrial design, service design, social studies, cartography, coding, data analysis, information visualization, film, art, etc. is encouraged for this class.

Open to: Masters degree in Design and Technology majors only; others by permission of Design and Technology program.
